His focus has always been on practical solutions that systemically assure quality and improvement, while minimizing cost and drive towards adding value.
Colin is a professional auditor and performs audits for ISO registrars, internal audit for a wide variety of organizations and second party supplier audits.
He has an MBA from Middlesex University, a Management Diploma in Administrative Management from the Institute of Administrative Management and a Diploma in International Marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

“ISO 9001 is used by millions of people and organisations around the world and the upcoming 2015 revision will have a big impact on those who work with the standard.
The impact of this revision will be similar to, if not greater than the 2000 edition, which was a major change for accreditation bodies, certification bodies, training organisations, implementing organisations, procurement organisations, consultants and customers.”
